that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s

carried in 2008. >> walk us through some of the shadings here of an election desk making a call. because pennsylvania is so important, why say that it's too early and yet also say that the president has the lead? >> because you get raw vote coming in that gives you an indication of how the state is going. you have exit polls which give you an indication of how the state is going. the people in our decision desk who are very expert at this, very experienced at this, they require a very high level of confidence by matching the exit polls to what they see in key precincts and the actual vote before they're willing to say we won't get a surprise say a huge vote in the western part, more conservative part of pennsylvania for mitt romney overcoming the lead that president obama would develop in philadelphia and counties around philadelphia. they're going to be absolutely certain at an almost 100% confidence level before they'll call any of those states even if a candidate stakes out an early lead. >> thanks very much. we'll come back to you soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston i

was interviewed by the fbi, but it's not clear if broadwell has been questioned and if she will be. a u.s. official said petraeus was never a target of an investigation and that a tip about an affair led to that probe. now, general petraeus was scheduled to testify next week about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing. now, if there were an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of s
.. that is really a surrogate for a lot of things many of us would like to see with respect to climate policy, energy efficiency gets you in the same direction. and as the senator said, that is something on which congress has demonstrated as recently as the last five or six years that it can come together, and i think it could do it again and in a more aggressive way to get advantage of the opportunities which we now know that we have. some states have already experienced it and by the way some of the regulars of electricity like california and new york have figured out how to make it attractive to energy providers, electricity providers to provide more efficiency to the ed vintage of the consumer by to reducing rates so there are many things we would be able to agree on and advance the cause of the carbonizing the economy. >> the diversity of fuel sources as well as efficiency travel parallel to the interest of the environmental policy in my judgment. >> we did, the congress did agree on the standards and the administration has continued to work in the industry to move thos
and the president. big day for us here at cnn tomorrow. for now, let's go to wolf blitzer in "the situation room." wolf? >>> happening now, a grueling and very tight presidential race entering its final hours with the candidates campaigning right down to the wire. we're watching all of their final rallies. we're going to hear from president obama in ohio in a little while. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> it's election eve in america. 26 hours to go until the first polls close. as voters pick the next president of the united states. and the unparalleled coverage we've brought you all through the campaign certainly continues today. our cnn correspondents are trailing the candidates. they're diving into the issues. they're talking to voters in every critical battleground state as we count down these final hours to election day. let's begin our coverage this hour, covering mitt romney, the republican nominee is campaigning his way up the east coast today. his latest stop, virginia with 13 critically important electoral votes. president obama took them in 2008. president bush to
us. rick, i'm going to kick this off with you. what are traders saying ahead of tomorrow's election? >> they certainly expect a lot more movement in markets tomorrow and the following day. today was a go nowhere range day. even in the stocks they move into positive territory. dollar index has been firmly but lightly in positive territory with little turnover. same with the euro. many traders are saying, you know, it was momentum that propelled the giants in baseball. so, they're putting a lot of stock in momentum, which may be a positive for the challenger in the form of mitt romney but everybody has their own unique foibles how they want to proceed on the trading side. traders aren't giving me anything solid as a glimpse into who wins but they seem optimistic they think the fiscal cliff will be dealt with, but it won't be dealt with until next year and dealt with retrospectively. >> i would agree, that's what people are saying now. chris, regardless, you're saying you're staying neutral before the election. what does that mean? where are you putting your money right now? >> i think
, the american people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back. and we know in our hearts that for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. >> good morning. and welcome to a special edition of "morning joe." it's wednesday, november 7th. the morning after the election. we're live from historic stud studio -- here's willie -- in rockefeller center here in new york city in front of a great, very awake studio audience. they're wide awake. what's wrong with you people? >> what's wrong with you people? >> have you been up all night? >> unbelievable. >> all right. well, there's just a little news to report this morning. president obama has won a second term in the white house. >> what? you're kidding me. >> this is huge. go ahead. >> around 11:15 last night, the networks put the biggest swing state of the election, ohio, in the president's column. pushing him over the 270 electoral vote threshold. and at this hour, the president has 303 electoral college votes to mitt romney's 206. florida,
. we'll get into the particulars of virginia. how it matters and what it could tell us about the rest of the nation. the implications are many as virginia goes, well, is models for the rest of the nation may go. then there is the state of georgia. the polls have just closed there at 7:00 eastern and it, too, is too close to call. but then there is the state of indiana. "fox news" now projects governor mitt romney will win the state of indiana which president obama did win four years ago. that's a turnover. 5% of the votes in but the model suggests to us it is good gh to mitt romney according to the "fox news" decision team has won the state of indiana. "fox news" also projects governor romney will win in the bluegrass state kentucky with 4% of all precincts reporting. 2/3 of all voters are voting "fox news" ney and projects romney wins kentucky. outh too close to call in s carolina. none of the precincts are can project t we president obama will win in the state of vermont. six states where the polls have just closed. we've made calls in two of them. and in the others we can't yet mak
for his second term. >> tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. >> there were cheers in chicago and tears in boston. after the long hard fight, it was all over for the challenger. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. >> now after the bruising campaign and facing a congress as divided as it was before the election, president obama and the country prepare for the next four years. >> thank you, america! god bless you! god bless these united states. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "america this morning" with rob nelson and paula faris. >>> good wednesday morning, everybody. four years ago barack obama stood on the brink of history the morning after his election. now four years later he stands on the brink of a second term. >> the president has won re-election after a hard-fought campaign, saying he returned to the white house more determined and decisive than ever. >> and he claimed a decisive and sweeping victory over challenger mitt romney although
va would go is way too early. north carolina is important for us tonight. north carolina has been close throughout the evening and still is. 23% of precincts reporting. at some point we will have a call here, but not now. the state of missouri also to close to call, closing in just the last few minutes. a state of missouri to close to call in the early going, and the state of tennessee, the volunteer state with less than 1% of precincts reporting -- again, it looks lopsided. it is not. a number of other states just close. new jersey, oklahoma -- new jersey will be interesting throughout the night. electoral votes there. states that have closed where we made calls, which were absolutely expected. look at the red zone in dixie down there appear in mississippi, alabama, georgia, south carolina. we called south carna and little while ago. mississippi and alabama solidly red. oklahoma as well. if you look of the eastern seaboard, no surprises there. president obama right now with a 78 electoral votes. governor romney with 71 electoral votes. now florida has closed. as you know, we have
middle class. >> well, we've got chuck todd joining us and howard fineman. i have to give you some anecdotal information which has given me good information. i have a brother charlie who always votes for the winner. he called me an hour ago and said it's obama. because that's who he's going to vote for. don't laugh, chuck. when you get an absolute provable leading indicator you will never let it go either. so i've got one. i've looked at all the numbers today. all the numbers seem to point to a mild victory for obama. none seem to point for a victory for romney. what do you know so far? >> i can tell you the body language of the campaign, talking to the two campaigns. the obama folks don't think they're trailing in a single battle ground state and this is the day before the election. that's not to say they think they win every one of the nine battlegrounds if you include north carolina in that larger nine. that's how confident they are. that's how much they believe that they have done enough of what i would call the building the flood walls, if you will, with the early vote and the
is live with us. >> the president did the last campaigning for himself and see if a future democratic president will bring it out like mr. obama brought out president clinton. he will have basketball game with friends and time at home and mr. obama will have dinner with the family before sitting down to watch the election returns. in ohio, battle ground state he visited more than any other and likely decide whether he will return to the white house. he was introduced by bruce springsteen and jay z . later in iowa, the state that his bid. spring steep and mr. obama got teary eyed as he thought about the past. >> you said yes, we can and we did. and we didn't know the challenges . we knew we would get through those challenges the same way the nation always has. with that determined unconquerable american spirit. >> now by tradition . both the president and mitt romney would be out of sight much of the day. mr. obama is doing satellite interviews with radio and tv stations and mr. mitt romney campaigning in ohio and pennsylvania. >> thank you so much. >> brian: for mitt romney that was a
election headquarters. great to have you with us. all day long we've been watching grandmothers, first-time voters, rich people, poor people, blue collar workers, all the people who believe in america going to the polls, every state of our union today joining together at the ballot boxes, and we will be bringing you the results. we are here to tell you who won, why throughout this evening and what's next. it's your voice as we've been saying and your vote tonight. >> diane, it has been a long, bitter and expensive race. deadlocked most of the way and revealed an america divided in so many ways. tonight, all of you are going to tip the balance. >> and now we are ready to begin because we have three projections to make because the polls have closed in six states and we are ready to go. here it is. indiana, this state has switched, president obama won it four years ago, governor romney has won it this time. it is not a surprise, though. we were expecting governor romney to take indiana. kentucky, this is a very red state and governor romney has taken kentucky, as well, tonight. and vermon
this? >> law enforcement and multiple u.s. paula broadwell, his biographer were indicative of an extramarital affair. . >> really? e-mail? all they had to do to have america's general is to log on to his e-mail? any way we can intrigue that little sound bite up a bit? multiple law enforcement officials tell us e-mails between him and paula broadwell, his biographer were indicative of an extramarital affair. >> how exciting. >> good morning. it is tuesday, november 13th. welcome to "morning joe." with us onset, we have national affairs editor for new york magazine and msnbc political analyst john heilemann. msnbc political analyst mark haleprin, and the author of a new book "thomas jefferson: the art of power," jon meacham. >> who never e-mailed anyone. >> are you sure? >> actually, no. >> best-selling, that thing skyrocketed -- >> the fbi is looking into monticello e-mail. >> thomas jefferson, the randy bugger. >> by the way, heilemann is the national affairs writer for -- >> yes. >> this is going to be a long show. >> by the way -- >> growth industry. >> in the line of boo
that training and equipment on us is simply unconscionable. whether we leave tomorrow or 1,000 tomorrows from now, nothing, nothing will really change. we're now nothing more than a recruiting poster for every malcontent in the middle east. we need to wake up, and i read that yesterday in the conference, mr. speaker. i want my party and the democratic party to wake up and get our troops home. mr. speaker, recently on cnn's reliable sources with howard kurtz, well-known journalist made this statement. we seem to be concerned about the sex lives of our generals than real-life soldiers. probably no one knew who sergeant channing hicks and specialist joseph richardson were. they were two american soldiers killed in afghanistan the friday before he was interviewed. almost everyone in the country knows paula boardwell. that's such a tragedy, mr. speaker, that our troops are dying in afghanistan and we're writing about generals having relationships with outside of a marriage. it makes no sense. we've lost 32 americans in october and november. i want to know where is the outrage here in congress, why
's re-election. >> we have seen an honest man who knows the facts and always gives it to us straight. >> reporter: and mr. obama teared up, whether from emotion or the cold, as he reminisced about his first improbable victory in the iowa caucuses that propelled him to the presidency and he asked voters for four more years to finish what he started. >> after all the rallies, after the millions of dollars of ads, it all comes down to you. it's out of my hands now. it's in yours. >> reporter: vice president joe biden is voting in his home state of delaware this morning. the president cast his ballot a week and a half ago here in chicago. and early voting has really been key to the obama campaign strategy. they are leading in the early vote in almost every battleground state that has early voting, but republicans typically turn out in greater numbers on election day, so the big question we'll be watching all day today is will those early obama leads hold. >> thank you. >>> john dickerson is with us. good morning. what should we be looking for as we watch these returns come in? >> i want
about a recession in europe, and a big concern overall about the health of the u.s. economy. of the stocks that are actually up today, and there are a few, they are related to healthcare and providing healthcare facilities, because of the healthcare law that is going into effect. so we'll keep an eye on the markets and everything that is happening now. we have brand-new stories and breaking news this hour. jon: develop shrink deeper into president obama's historic victory. what fox news exit polls tell bus the make up of today's american voters, plus now they are stuck together, will the president and the republican-led house embrace some kind of bipartisan effort to keep us from going over that fiscal cliff? problems, like millions of jobless americans to iran's nuclear ambitions, what does the president's re-election mean for our nation's future at home and overseas? it's all "happening now." it is over, time for some election reflex and th rereflection hours after the nation voted to give president obama a second term. good morning i'm jon scott. you were up late. jenna:
to us by social media. @cspanwj. the conversation constantly going on on facebook -- facebook.com/cspan. we begin this morning with a look at the lead story in "the baltimore sun." pushed to speed of voting processes is the headline. he writes -- we want to find out from you, our viewers and listeners, your thoughts and remedies on speeding up the voting process. more from the article in "the baltimore sun." the article goes on to talk about a bill being proposed by virginia by senator mark warner. it says -- we would like to show you a little bit more about what the president had to say regarding voting lines and polling places. his thinking people and appreciating the time they had to wait in line to vote. [video clip] >> i want to thank every american who participated in this election. [applause] whether you voted for the very first time -- [cheers and applause] -- or waited in long for a very long time -- by the way, we have to fix that. host: we are talking about remedies to speed up the voting process. the first call comes from michael in oregon on the line for democrats
simple, as we wind down this presidential campaign, tell us who will win and why. host: as always, you can join us on facebook, send it to e-mail -- journal@c-span.org, or send us a tweet at twitter.com/c- spanwj. let's go the battleground states and the headlines, courtesy of the newseum this morning. from "the cleveland plain dealer," it is all about ohio. meanwhile, "the sunday tribune review," "pennsylvania still in play." pennsylvania is shown at a dead heat. 47% for the president, 47% for mitt romney. we will have live coverage of the mitt romney campaign appearance later today. in western pennsylvania, obama saying the president deserves another four years. from the tampa -- "tampa tribune," "paving the way to the presidency." the obama and romney campaign tosco on the attack in rallies. both the president and the vice- president are shown campaigning in the granite state in the final hours of this presidential campaign. just some of the headlines this morning. some of you are already weighing in on twitter and facebook about who will win and why. david says that it is mitt romn
. so much for that. john roberts is still with us. explain the rationale for what the romney team tells you in order for them to be victorious today. what key do they need to happen? >> reporter: they need their ground game to work. they need to rack em, stack em and get em out to the polls. there are a lot of states where president obama never left the states since the 2008 election. when you look at the early voting numbers in florida and ohio, obama has the advantage. but that advantage smaller in some cases by half of what it was in '08. does governor romney have a chance to take this? yes, he does. dose have a lot of work to do today if he hopes to get it? absolutely. bill: we want to move to chicago. martha: we saw a hug between mitt romney and tagg romney who has been instrumental throughout the course of this campaign. let's swing over to the other side of this huge decision for today. president obama will spend the day in his hometown of chicago. he has no public events scheduled today. held the last campaign rally ever in his political career last night in the state of iowa. t
